WordApplication offers a variety of different options for saving your WordWriter generated document.

WordApplication only supports BIFF-8 file formats: DOC, DOT. All output options are limited to these file formats.

After creating a document with WordApplication, you can:

Browsers other than Internet Explorer cannot embed a Word file in the browser window. When the generated document is streamed to a browser other than IE, the user will always be prompted to open or save the file. If the user chooses to open the file, it will open in Microsoft Word or another document application.

Internet Explorer can display a Word file in the browser window. When the generated document is streamed to Internet Explorer, the browser's settings will determine whether the file opens automatically or the user is asked to open or save the file. The parameter openInBrowserdetermines whether the file will open in IE or in a document application. If openInBrowser is set to true, the response content-disposition header is set to open the file in the browser window.
